MaggZ is a Naarm-based (Melbourne, Australia) movement artist, creative director and producer-researcher, trained in ballet and now specialised in waacking - a freestyle dance originated in 1970s LA from the Latinix and African American queer community, predominantly involving arm movements. Rooted at the intersection of street dance, site-specific installation and technology, extending into somatic and relational research and community-building with sustainability and lineage, MaggZ’s practice is hybrid, timeless, visceral and unapologetic as they constantly outbox themselves. MaggZ is appointed as Producer in Residence in 2022 (Naarm), Young Artistic Directorate at Next Wave in 2023 (Naarm), and producer / performance art consultant at Collide24 (Berlin, Germany). MaggZ’s recent achievements are - the recipient of the Young Creative Awards in 2020, nominated four times by the Green Room Awards, and the winner of Destructive Steps allstyle 2v2 dance battle in 2022, winner of 4v4 waacking Waack Inferno Vol.3 in 2023.
